Great 18th century Philadelphia windsor arm chairs are hard to come by. Bold, yet finely designed, this windsor balances the traditional comb-back form with sleek elements like the serpentine arm supports. What makes this chair particularly unique is that it is made almost entirely of walnut. It was meant to be admired for form alone. A walnut windsor would not be painted, the wood was too nice—too expensive. This is an exceptional windsor arm chair deserving of a fine collection.
